At peace...

It is amazing what a calming feeling being near or on the water has, at least for me.  It is peaceful, it removes whatever I had on my mind and gives me rest.

This picture was one of my earlier sails this year.  Every time I see this picture it takes me to that moment in time where I was at peace. 

I hope you are having a great day and that you find something that gives you as much peace as this moment did/does for me.

Learning something new....

They say as you get older you should continue to learn something new to keep your body and mind active.  Well, I certainly qualify for this.

In December, I took sailing lessons, it was fun, frustrating and fantastic.  This has been fun on so many levels.  Just being on the water takes me to a very relaxing space. 

Along with learning to sail comes taking pictures of the adventure, which isn't new, but taking videos is something new and then what do you do with all those videos.

Well, you learn how to create something with them, which I did.

I have created a YouTube channel to share this new adventure.  My friend and I are avid coffee drinkers and not decaf, which we incorporated in our channel name.   Our channel name is DeepSixDecaf.

So after about 3 weeks of pictures and videos today I was able to post a video.

Please stop over to the channel and take a look, here is a link for you.  Thanking you for taking the time to check it out!  Stay tuned for more adventures on DeepSixDecaf

Where has the time gone.....

How is it that the end of the year is so close?  I wish I knew what the heck happened to this year but I will not waste any time thinking back as to where did the time go.

So, what have I been up to. Well, I have been playing around with my DSLR camera more than before, although I have not posted a lot of pictures, that will happen next year.  I have been watching, probably way too many, YouTube videos on sailing and boy are they great and amazing people.  I started to teach myself how to edit videos, which can be challenging. 

It is amazing how many people have said enough of living a life dictated by others just to make the all mighty dollar for stuff they thought they needed but really didn't.   They sell all their stuff, buy a sailboat and head out for the adventure of a lifetime!! 

So, I have taken sailing lessons and joined a sailing club.  No, I'm not ready to cross the Atlantic just yet, however you just never know!!!  I have passed the two required classes in order to take the sailboat out without a captain!!!  Woohoo!!  Next year is going to be amazing so be sure to keep watch on my blog and I will also be starting my own YouTube channel with videos of my adventures!

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!!

Where has the time gone....

Greetings everyone,

Where has the time gone?  I'm not talking switching our clocks to gain that extra hour of shut eye, I mean the calendar year, it is creeping closer to the end of the year!  My, oh my!

I'm making it my mission, at least for next year and maybe the rest of this year, to post more on my blog, whether it be just a picture here and there, a story of some adventure I may have been on or just about nothing.

I hope you continue to read my posts and just maybe I will get more followers. I have discovered that Youtube seems to be the place to get followers or subscribers as they are called.  I have been watching sailing videos, people giving up their land life to live aboard and abroad.   Some very amazing stories crossing the globe on a boat and not only visiting amazing places but just the people you meet along the way.  I would do it in a heartbeat!!

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your weekend with whatever comes your way!




This picture was taken in August on Sanibel Island.  Heading out to the beach from the rented condo.  Can you feel the warm sand between your toes?  I can, now close your eyes and listen to waves crashing on the beach and the feel the sand under your feet.

Enjoy...

Another great beach trip....

What a great few days at the beach with a friend and her daughter.  It was the last big hooray before school starts and where else would you go but to the beach.

Amazing sky...

I just love sunsets and sunrises.  I took this picture earlier this week.  The colors are awesome.  Enjoy your week.

At peace...

It is amazing what a calming feeling being near or on the water has, at least for me.  It is peaceful, it removes whatever I had on my mind ...
